Further musings on the Fender Amp no reverb problem

Hey robotek, Thanks for helping so far. I have new input for you on the problem. I unplugged the foot switch and the reverb works fine. I then trouble shot the foot switch by jumping the wires (bypassing the switches themselves) in the foot switch. The vibrato side worked but the reverb sided didn't. What I gather from this is that it is NOT the switch because I doubt the wires are the problem. So the reverb unit works without the switch. When the switch is pluged in, the vibrato side works but the reverb side doesn't. I obviously want to use the switch when onstage. What do you think? Thanks, Blownhead

Hi, sorry for the delay. Sounds like a faulty cable, or the termination at the jack plug is faulty. These can create the problem you have. What model do you have again, don't remember getting that from you.

cheers

How can I fix reverb?


Either the spring driver circuit blew or the SPRING INSIDE BROKE.
You gotta get in there. Take out the spring unit and check if there is a tensed spring in there. If so, check the connectors. Also check the footswitch plug in the back of the amp, plug and unplug a cable several times, sometimes it becomes dirty and does not let signals through. You can check if the reverb has no drive by tapping the spring while the amp is on and the reverb volume is up. If it sounds, your reverb is fine but not receiving input. That would be the driver circuit. Take it to a Tech and explain.... GOOD LUCK !

Hot rod delux 1-12 master volume, reverb and eq circuits not working. amp still functions and boost still functions


1st thing to check is the tubes that run those circuits

A good amp shop will have access to a tube tester.

Secondary issue might be one of the power supply lines has quit and you'll need a tech for that.


please rate my help if this helps....Thanks

I have a new '65 Deluxe reverb Reissue Fender Tube Amp and I'm not getting power to the amp after I plug it in and turn it on. Ive checked other things in the outlet and they work, so it is not the outlet....


If you have power and a good connection to the guitar, don't take it apart - take it back. It has a warranty and any reputable dealer will give you another one - just ask for a test before leaving the store/shop.

Footpedal for a Fender Princeton 112 plus amp


This one SHOULD work... use a plain 1/4 inch speaker cable to connect to the amp.

Please note that information is sparse...

I would recommend calling Musicians Frien.com or Same Day music.com and have them verify if this will work.

Guitar amp make large crescendo-like noise, loud pop at end.


Same loudness, no speaker? This sounds (no pun intended) like a filter capacitor shorting out. Open it up and VERY CAUTIOUSLY look for what is making the noise. Filter capacitors can eject hot stuff. Very dangerous.

No reverb


Hey mate

Dont think the wrong plugin hurt you. Is just the fickle finger of fate pointing at yo:)

All tubes should have a glow in them, the smaller ones can be a bit hard to see at times. A way to check is carefully check if it is getting hot, or at least as hot as the others. It can sometimes be a crook valve socket also. Depends on the age of the beast :) A bit of a wriggle, or a reposition in the socket can bring back the heater to one that is out from a dodgy socket. Only long term solution to a faulty socket is to replace it. I have a tiny file round that I clean em out with, but once they are crook, they give trouble. Good luck, hope you get it sorted. Let me know how you get on. Cheers mate!

Fender Cyber-Twin amp, version 1.2


Hi PSumac

Here is a PDF of how to upgrade your amp.

It does involve changing a ROM chip in the amp, so it is more of a hardware upgrade to get the new firmware into your rig. The upgrade ROM can be ordered through a Fender dealer closest to you.

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :) If you are still unsure, or have problems, then before you give a rating for this advice, please get back to me and we can try some more things.

Fender deluxe reverb


Hi Hoopnholler

I would start by changing out 12AT7 (V4), is a common buffer stage to the vibrato and reverb audio path. If you have trouble identifying it, you can just swap out with a known good tube and see if it resolves your problem.
If that does not help, then time to go see an amp doctor. If youy are inclined. here is a circuit diagram that you may find useful in faultfinding the problem yourself.
